Im going through the dcpromo process for my first 2008 r2 dc. forestprep and domainprep went through with no errors. now in the process of promoting it i get the.
A delegation for the dns server cannot be created because authoritative parent zone cannot be found ot ir does not run windows dns server.
i looked it up that problem and most people thought the cause was because it was the first dns server in the domain. this is not the case. on the network settings on the new 2008 soon to be dc... it is pointing to an already existing dc with active directory integrated dns.
so i go over to the 2003 r2 dc with dns running and go to the event viewer for dns and i see all these event id 4004 errors in the event viewer. i don't think my dns is functioning properly. im on hold on the dcpromo install.
attached are the 2 errors i am seeing
